Since this library runs on it's own DAW plug-in and cannot be run inside Kontakt, can it still be run inside VEPro? I would need to install it into my PC where I have all my sounds which are addressed [through VEPRo] by my sequencer in my MAC.

Sure it can.  I didn't know they started using their own plugin host.  That's interesting...

5,1 MacPro 12core X 3.46ghz, 128gb ram, RX580 video, OSX Mojave, VSL (almost everything), LogicPro, Cubase10, StudioOne, DP9, Reaper, Dorico, Finale, MuseScore, Notion6, EW Hollywood Orch, Kirk Hunter, GPO, much more..

It is the same interface that Hans Zimmer Strings from Spitfire uses- and I have that running in VI Pro- BUT- can not seem to have VI Pro "see" BBc Symphony on the external hard drive that it comes on- Have the issue out to Spitfire and when they explain it to me I will post the answer

So here is the solution-

First go to your file explorer and search under your "C" drive in Programs 'vsts' or Programs [86] vsts- or under a folder that is your Daw [in this case Steinberg] - under Steinberg look in VSTS - What you are looking for is "BBC Symphony Orchestra (64 Bit).dll" or 32 bit depending on your machine [you can try searching that exact file name also]

under Vienna Instruments pro on the slave or main computer go to -options then Preferences - says "server and plugins" on the left- choose "plugins"

At bottom of page says "vst settings" click on that - this is list of where VI Pro looks for VSTS- on right "add folder" and navigate to the location you found for the .Dll file- then hit rescan

Go into VI pro and "channel" "insert plug in "- slide over to "Spitfire Audio" and "BBc Symphony should be right there to select and insert

Thank you. I actually haven't bought the BBC library yet. So if I understand correctly, after I purchase it and download it into my computer, I have VEPRo find it exactly the same way I had VEPro find Kontakt, yes?

Hi Sacksmusic, 

I'd definitely take a look at our SYNCHRON-ized Special Editions... just sayin'... you can choose from many volumes, and a comparison will reveal quite some benefits...

And yes, all instrument plug-ins will be assigned/found the same way by VE Pro (on PC, that depends on having the right VST Plug-in folder(s) assigned).

Hi Paul,

I am running BBC Symphony in VEP6 with all sections of the orchestra under one instance. I am having quite a lot of pops / clicks and wondering if I should spread the instruments out more into other instances. I have about 20 BBC Symphony plugins running. 


Many thanks Rupert

I am running BBC through VEP 7 and no issues. It runs smoothly. I have an SSD Raid where the samples are, which might help mitigate pops and clicks.

Bit of a noob question but I'm fairly new to orchestral templates - also have Spitfire Audio BBC Symphony Orchestra and have set up an instance in VEP server (running on one machine - not a slave setup) for 1st violins, have added 8 articulations in that instance and thought it would be as simple as assigning each of them a MIDI channel then matching those up in Logic but it doesn't seem to work - I watched a YT vid where a guy goes into Logic's Environment and creates some multitimbral thing with a gate or something, then drags it on to a load of blank external MIDI tracks under the software instrument with VEP connected to the server.. Do you have to do that? Seems a bit ott.. I have all my libraries on an external SSD - just having a real nightmare trying to get this working!! Any help greatly appreciated :)

Hi Tim, 

Did you select "ALL" as a MIDI Channel on top of your channel in VE Pro? That should work for all multi-timbral plug-ins
